Veneers Q & A

Edgewater Dental Group

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to cover the front side of your teeth and enhance your natural smile. Before bonding the veneers to your existing teeth, your qualified dentist at Edgewater Dental Group goes tooth-by-tooth to fit each veneer. Veneers cover up imperfections such as:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stains
  • Cracks
  • Gaps

Veneers also help strengthen delicate teeth. The team at Edgewater Dental Group offer both cosmetic veneers and whole mouth aesthetic reconstruction at competitive prices.

Porcelain remains the most stain-resistant material for making veneers, though veneers may also be created out of resin composite materials. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. One of the dental team members reviews your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

How do I get veneers?

After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you return for another appointment. A cosmetic dental specialist then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. After this tooth prep, your dental practitioner takes a mold of your teeth to create individualized veneers in the dental lab.

You come back to have the finished veneers fitted to each tooth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers improve crooked, broken, or misshapen teeth while maintaining the natural appearance of your teeth. Additionally, they offer the following advantages.

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • Cheaper than other dental treatments such as crowns
